Volume Measurements



Challenges

Raw material handling is more challenging than manufacturing, where products are managed as units and types. The raw materials are often measured as volumes and weights, which have shortcomings. Having volume and weight available to calculate an estimated density early can be essential.    

Flasheye provides accurate volume measurements while transporting materials and the opportunity to add more intelligent features from the same sensor! 


Volume on truckbeds

The truck's load is accurately captured while driving ~30km/h and beyond. 


Volume on conveyor belts

Capture the volume and the characteristics of the material from the same sensor.


Volume of stockpiles

Gather the real-time status and volumes of the stockpiles to improve the planning and logistics activities. 


Wheel loader buckets

Similar to the truck bed volume, you can gather the volume of wheel loader buckets.

Better planning

The information about the material is captured across the site from conveyor belts, trucks, and stockpiles, greatly reducing transport times.

Prevent down-time

Prevent mistakes by making sure you always have the intended amount of material or control machines based on real-time 3D data.

Catch any scenario 

In addition to measuring volume, it is also possible to detect other important events in the surroundings. For example, if the truck load exceeds the safe maximum height which could cause severe damage to infrastructure especially in underground mines and tunnels.

Another function that improves safety is detecting people and vehicles approaching from the driver's blind spot and informing them promptly. 

"Undoubtedly, the design process proved to be the most fascinating aspect. Meticulously integrating each intricate function into a cohesive procedure, in conjunction with our extant codebase, has been immensely rewarding. The most formidable challenge was the three-dimensional construction of the vehicles, necessitating several detours before arriving at the currently employed solution."

Flasheye's lidar solutions


More autonomous

Lidar technology is the most progressive technology acting as eyes for your machines, with an understanding of the environment.

Safer and smarter

Thousands of 3D measurement points and distances are captured in real-time. Self-diagnosis ensures the full capacity of all sensors 24/7.

Technologically agnostic

Flasheye's solutions support almost all sensors that generate 3D data. This allows you to upgrade to the latest technology and keep your momentum. 

Integrity upheld

Light detection allows us to precisely detect movements without identifying individuals and breaching integrity and GDPR. 

You are in good hands.
